For the first time ever a Test between the All Blacks and the Wallabies is being streamed live online for free to fans around the globe. Those outside of the official broadcast territories will be able to log on at kickoff to watch live, or on demand post match.
More than 45 countries around the world can log on to the All Blacks Youtube channel, or here on Rugbydump, to watch the final Test in the Bledisloe Cup series live. Kickoff is at 7.35pm NZT.
It's the first time such a high profile rugby match has been streamed live this way, and will reach countries such as the USA, Russia and Italy. A full list can be viewed below.
If it is not available in your country, it's probably because there are TV agreements in place to broadcast it - this is purely for fans in those countries where there are not.
"In terms of world rugby, it doesn't get much bigger than the All Blacks against our traditional rival, Australia. Providing fans from Manhattan to Moscow with an opportunity to watch the final Bledisloe Cup Test of the year supports our goal to showcase the All Blacks in new markets throughout the world and build our global fan base," said New Zealand Rugby Chief Executive Steve Tew.
As well as the live stream, Saturday's match will also be available to be viewed as Video on Demand following the live broadcast. It is available in the following countries:
USA, Albania, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Bosnia Herzegovina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Iceland, Italy, Jamaica, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Venezuela
